How I do to increase System PTE's on Windows 7 Professional, and how I do to get these to extend over the pagefile?
Here is my problem: Currently, Im configuring computers at a internet café. To prevent customers from installing viruses and such things, and make a jerk out of the computers, Im running "ewf" (Enhanced write filter) in RAM-REG mode. Thus, any Changes that are made to the computers are wiped at reboot, putting the system in a "fresh" state each boot.
The computers do have a protected drive (700GB) and one unprotected (64GB). The computers do have 16 GB of physical RAM.
On the unprotected drive, I have placed a pagefile of 50 GB. Thus there should be 66 GB of memory for the system to store disk overlays in.
But regardless of if page file are enabled or disabled, the system stalls when changing more than 6 GB of data is changed on the harddrive. I googled on the problem, and found this page: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/windows-embedded/archive/2009/11/17/ewf-overlay-limits-on-windows-embedded-standard-2009-and-2011.aspx
Apparently the System PTE's are exhausted Before the system get any chance to swap the pages to page file. I googled more and apparently System PTE's is managed automatically by windows and are NOT extended over page file.
Is there any "registry hack" that I can do to:
1: Increase System PTE's
2: Have them extend over page file.
I would also appreciate any other solutions that can be used to solve the problem, for example installing third party software that would make the system Think the page file is part of physical ram (instead of virtual ram).
I tried to increase the SystemPages property to max (0xFF...FF) but it didnt have any effect.
